Fragmentation of the Task functionality in Confluence

Jodie Miners Oct 02, 2012

I am trying to work out the best strategy for my clients to use for doing lightweight task management in Confluence. I thought that since we have the new Task features and Workbox in 4.3 that this would be a no-brainer. We would not need Ad Hoc Workflows, we can just use the new functionality.

Once again, I feel that the release of this new feature in Confluence is a bit half-baked and it doesn't actually do all the things you need it to do.

So, I'm now trying to work out which method is best.

  • Tasks in Workbox (Conf 4.3)
  • Tasklist Macro (I don't think this will stand up to comparison).
  • Ad Hoc Workflow Add-on
  • Will I also need the Reporting add-on (addional cost).
  • Or can the Ad Hoc Canvas add-on do enough for reporting (as it has other cool features too).

So I have created a spreadsheet comparing all the features and I would love your help in adding to it. This spreadsheet is published online and editable by you.

Please help me compare all the features of these three Task Lists.

I've also added this to a blog post and included the published spreadsheet with the comparison so far http://jodiem.com.au/2012/10/04/fragmentation-of-task-functionality-in-confluence/
